I had not yet taken the time to do a thing with the pallet sofa or patio furniture. Our summer hasn’t hit yet so the patio simply became a dumping ground for a bunch of misfits.
But tonight the clouds finally blew over and the sun came out! Having also been suddenly gifted with an unexpected quiet evening of my son falling asleep at 5pm, I was left with a nice opportunity to work on a writing assignment.
Alongside my misfits. Oh well… writing makes you blind to all else, so I got to work.
After a good amount was completed, I looked up and sighed. This really IS such a lovely area to write! So a few tweaks later, it went…
… from the land of sad and barren to…
… a pallet perfect little hideaway for a writer.
I just put my land of misfits to work. Two oddball tables keep the computer safe from my never ending supply of coffee.
This little table was the perfect spot to layer my portable kettle herb garden.
The mattress on the pallet sofa was wrapped with a sheet, a few oversized pillows plunked in place along with a few pretties…
and I called it done. The land of misfits all found homes.
I mean, all this stuff is very simple and not even all that much was used. But it certainly proves how just a little effort can transform your space from sad to happy.
I’ve been standing up for two solid weeks while blogging in the house, (trying it out for size, it’s interesting!) so it was a real treat to sit on something comfy and enjoy the warm summer surroundings for a change.
Even my rusty gear coaster found it’s way back into full swing once again.
This spot really is a perfect little hideaway for a writer.
The herbs are doing really well in their misfit kettles! They’ve also proved to be loads of fun to move around for various photo shoots. The kettle idea really works well!
I’m always in good company. My dog just makes everything even happier, wouldn’t you agree?
I just may be further encouraged to deck out the rest of the space… maybe… ok, after one more coffee and chapter…
